Costa Adeje is an upmarket resort on the southern coast of Tenerife that attracts the discerning traveller who enjoys attractive, sophisticated sandy beaches and luxurious hotels. Jardines de Nivaria is one such hotel which is surrounded by beautiful grounds, boasts top-notch dining and attentive service. And with direct access to the beach, it makes for a fun fantastic holiday destination for everyone as Luxurious Magazine’s reporter, Sabi Phagura, found out.
One of the first things that struck me about this hotel is the attentive service. It’s no wonder guests return year-on-year. Having had a huge overhaul, Jardines de Nivaria can be described as a classic Art Deco hotel blended with contemporary architectural features. They have a fantastic video uploaded on YouTube showing the complete makeover condensed in just three minutes. It’s rather impressive.
Its open plan tiered lobby gives the guests the feeling they have truly arrived somewhere special. The floor-to-ceiling windows allow plenty of light towards the back and front of the building, while the middle is a few shades darker, designed that way to provide a more cosy ambience. Abstract furniture and paintings sit alongside stunning brass figurines and huge plants with ease, under a magnificent stained-glass dome.
Outside, the focal point is most definitely the meandering swimming pool, one half of which is heated. It’s surrounded by avant-garde showers, footbridges and waterfalls and is set within immaculate gardens. The direct access to the popular Fanabe beach is a great touch and leads you to a promenade from where you can while away hours walking along the seafront. And when you’re done, the day beds in the hotel’s landscaped grounds are just perfect for resting on.
There are a number of room options here. Set in a series of blocks circulating the grounds, the rooms are contemporary, spacious and airy thanks to the ivory shades and are kitted with natural wood furniture and black panelling on doors. Some rooms, like my own, had a walk-in wardrobe which I personally loved. There’s nothing worse than trying to find enough space to hang your clothes in a cramped little cubie hole.
